    More information would have been helpful, but I'm going to guess that is bloody poop. Since cocci can be a life threatening emergency, and since some strains of cocci cause bloody poop, I'm going to suggest you get some Corid (amprolium) from the feed store, and give it to all your chicks. Since you probably can't get it til tomorrow, if you have any yogurt or buttermilk, try to get a little of that into them tonight. You may have to give it by dropper along the side of their beak. I'll give you a link with the dose for Corid and another that gives a home remedy in the meantime, in case you happen to have the ingredients. If nothing else, do add some powdered milk to their feed (and give a little by dropper if needed.)

    It certainly could be. Nothing to do, really, but separate it from the others, and wait and see.
